We all have our codes when we make our shopping lists. Uh, don’t we?
Below is a bunch of entries on my past three or four shopping lists. Can you figure out what I’m buying?
G.B. - 3
G.B.l - 1
G.P. & G. S.
M & C
Naturally I put on common things such as: salad, onions, stewed tom., diced tom., bread, butter, and other such things.
Figured out the list above yet? Here are the answers.
G.B. - 3 = Three pounds of regular ground beef.
G.B.l - 1 = One pound of lean ground beef. I also use xl for the extra lean.
t.s. x2 = The lower case refers to the 8-oz cans of tomato sauce and the x2 means two of them.
T.S. = The upper case refers to the 29-oz cans of tomato sauce.
t.p. = Tricky. The lower case refers to the 6-oz can of tomato paste.
T.P. = Caps refers to toilet paper.
G.P. & G. S. = Don’t know how I ran out of both of them, but this is garlic powder and garlic salt.
M & C = Piece of cake: Macaroni and cheese. I only buy Kraft so I don’t need anything else.
D. M. = Dinty Moore.
m.r. x2 = Two 4-oz cans of mushrooms. I normally buy stems and pieces, but if I want sliced I’d add /s and /b would be buttons.
M. R. -1 = One pound of fresh mushrooms.
CofA = A can of Cream of Asparagus soup.
CofM x2 = Two cans of Cream of Mushroom soup.
CC = Cheddar cheese.
How many did you figure out and do you do the same type of shorthand when you’re making your shopping list?
